With playing cards we can build a house, create a castle and give shape to a small architecture. In this project I wanted to represent the architecture and retract some of its protagonists turning them into a small illustrated game. The kings, the queens and the knaves are the leading actors of a little illustrated story to play with the imagination. The forms and shape of architecture and design become the signs and figures that draw the card. I like to play in the life. Keep alive the ability to have fun with little. A playful attitude is something very serious for me, or maybe not....
I always liked play as a form of learning, toys are often a prelude to serious ideas. The game can also be a thought experimentation. I'm interested in playing with architecture seriousness and illustration lightheartedness. Game and architecture are seen by many as a distant concepts. To enjoy the creative process I need the game. I had a "serious fun" making this deck of cards.
